Symposium on “The Master Switch”

I am pleased to announce that Concurring Opinions will host a symposium this week on Tim Wu’s The Master Switch:  The Rise and Fall of Information Empires. Contributors will include Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, & AT&T.

Well . . . not really.  The actual contributors will be:

1.  Tim Wu

2.  Our own Frank Pasquale

3.  Paul Ohm (Colorado)

4.  Jim Speta (Northwestern)

5.  Katherine Strandburg (NYU)

6.  Siva Vaidhyanathan (Virginia)

7.  Jonathan Zittrain (Harvard)

I’m looking forward to a fun exchange of ideas about Tim’s book, which you can purchase here.

UPDATE:  James Grimmelmann (New York Law School) has also agreed to talk about Tim’s book (during the same week that he’s guest blogging on Volokh).  Impressive!

    Empire of the information only after a time may fail. A few years later, the Facebook is just a small idea becomes. Zuckerberg had already become very rich, but the page will come to nothing.
